Even it´s a little annoying the 2 dimensional narration with Jennings on and off the fiction; Maggie is so vivid, that steals everything.

An average movie

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out.

“To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I’m not sure if I really cared about this story but there is no doubt that Maggie Smith and Alex Jennings both delivered some really solid performances. Indeed, in contrary to the rest of the movie, Smith and Jennings were never really particularly kind to each other but it made their characters so much more interesting to behold. Without them, I seriously wonder if it would have worked at all since, even if the material was not bad, the tone was just too quirky for me. On top of that, they constantly focused on the fact that the past of this woman must be so interesting. As a result, they added” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2016 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 44min. First Viewing An amiable, light dramedy with a strong pair of performances from Smith and Jennings, The Lady in the Van is wittier than most British awards-types, but it still too often bland and lifeless that it can be a slog at times. Solid, but unspectacular. "

"31.12.2016 Päivyrikommentointi jäi vähälle, mutta en lannistu, vaan perustan vuodelle 2017 uuden päivyrin. Itse elokuva oli kivaa pienimuotoista brittidraamaa, hyvillä näyttelijöillä. Itseäni hieman kiusasi, että en hoksannut ajan kulua elokuvan edetessä, mutta ehkä idea olikin että katsoja ikään kuin yllätetään sillä kuinka aika vain kuluu nopeasti. "
